pointless gripe, but I will proceed anyways.
these new hood gangs trying to revolutionize sheng and all
the rate at which sheng changes is usually stretched out
with organic modifications whose backstory is easily discernable.
new words will emerge from our many regional tribal languages
or they will be simple alternations and / or modifications of words from Kiswahili or other well known languages.
Its Easy to trace mogen from German Morgen. Das, from Hindi Dus (10), which used to be Ashara in the old sheng as adapted from Arabic Ashara (10).Maku would be the reverse of a swahili word am not sure admean would let survive on a post that is not marked explicit
Now, what the hell is Monchoka ? is it somehow related to Chomoka and why does the modification rely on the originators intoxication level and inability to pronounce correctly ?
Is Kunauo from Kuona or something?
I dont know what is going on around town but I highly suspect its fueled by the most potent of low cost intoxicants in the low income neighbourhoods.
I watched a clip from the new "gangs" in town with their indica induced "revolutional sheng"
Last time I checked, sting ya Mavado na Vybz Kartel ilikua 2009. That was the height of the Gully - Gaza Gang / Music war in Jamaica.
Its over 10 years now. I see how "Militant", "Guz" and "Madocho" want to model their artistic aesthetics on Vybz Kartel, but honestly, is information reaching these potential criminals too late or its their personal choice ?
I respect their hustle, but its bewildering how stale Gaza - Gully citations still reach our ears from Music made in 2020.
Its good to see them young bredrin making something out of themselves, but either am too old....or there is some deep level niggatry going on in these streets with sheng modification and usage of stale information to make points. If anyone was to do any stale citation, I would have hoped for something closer to the UK Drill music scene rivalry....but isorait, we will work with what's available.
I feel better now.
